Lady Redskins fall just short in Lyon College Championship game

‘Skins dominate up to the end
BATESVILLE- It appeared the Lady Redskins were easily on their way to another tournament championship following the prior week’s massacre of each opponent in the WBC Tourney, but the Lady Yellowjackets of Mountain View came in ready and gave the ‘Skins a run for their money Saturday night for the 48-45 upset in the Lyon College Tournament championship game.
The Lady ‘Skins started off the tourney on Tuesday afternoon with a 57-30 win over Salem and then a 56-32 win over Highland Friday night. The now 9-2 Lady Redskins took on the 6-2 Lady Yellowjackets in the finals in what would be a nail-biter all the way through. Redskin senior Kristen Wiseman could hardly be stopped Saturday night going 9-16 for 56 percent from the field and grabbing nine rebounds along with a steal and a block.
